    before doing HST, I used to do hanging leg raises because my program did not include chins/pull-ups.

    With these additional exercises in HST, I find it hard to do hanging leg raises.

    So, I was wondering if the captain's chair can be used as a substitute to work the abs.

    Is the captain's chair a good ab exercise anyway?

    depends on the range of the machine. some barely move, but if its a decent machine you can get a good stretch and crunch.

    i use a decline bench set at 45 degrees or more, we also have a dip station modified for abs and hyperextensions, it really kicks your ***, abs.
